sampling frequency

The sampling frequency (or sample rate) is the number of samples per second in a Sound. For example: if the sampling frequency is 44100 hertz, a recording with a duration of 60 seconds will contain 2,646,000 samples.

Usual values for the sampling frequency are 44100 Hz (Compact Disc) and 48000 Hz (much modern audio equipment) (both enough for the human auditory system, since humans cannot hear frequencies above 20000 Hz; see aliasing).
